    Stuck in Read Only


    After updating to Windows 10 I created a homegroup and now everything in documents is stuck in read only. It's the filled in box not the checked box. I manually uncheck the read only and it goes right back to read only. I left home group and tried unsharing folders but no luck. I'm at a loss in what else to try. Also tried rollback and it fails. Tried reset and it fails. Tried image rollback and fails.

    Hello d3vious, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    The files would only be read-only if their box is checked instead.

    When I get home from work I will check it out again but I was having issues saving files after editing them, specifically a Microsoft word file. It would tell me the file was read only. Also the main reason I discovered this was my settings in a game were not saving. The settings are stored in the documents > my games folder. I would make changes in game then reblog and the changes would be gone.

    When I upgraded to windows 10, my system changed all files & folders that existed in win 8.1 to read only & a lot of them hidden. Adobe LightRoom was unable see any of the hidden ones. I have gone through and changed all to not either of those 2 attributes. The unchecked hidden seems to be staying unchecked, but the read only attribute immediately gets reset back to read only.
